We had a brilliant weekend at Stanley House. There were 23 of us all together, and there was more than enough room for everyone. It was great to find a house where all the rooms were in one building, where the rooms had ensuite bathrooms, and where all the bed linen/towels etc was provided. The house is absolutely beautiful and...

Thank you so much for catering for us all last Easter weekend. My family and i had such a brilliant time, it was just perfect for all 28 of us to reunite. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay; very comfy beds, hot powerful showers, spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen, open fire and the cinema room which was a great hit for...

I recently organised a family get together at Stanley House , Eskdale , on a self catering basis . This was no mean feat; as there was 24 of us . ( I should have hired a sheep dog too ) The house is over 200 years old and showing signs( As you would expect ) of wear and tear....

Booked last minute overnight stay, to attend a family funeral in the area. Arrived late at night from Gosforth in the rain and found the hotel locked. There is a phone and the lady said she was on her way. We waited a few minutes in the cramped porch. She was friendly and immediately showed us to our rooms and...

We took the whole house for the weekend for a large family celebration. Nice rooms, well equipped kitchen, lovely wood stove in the main room. Location is gorgeous. Perfect for our needs! Some of the decor is a little tired but all in all it was very comfortable. There's even a cinema in the basement.

There were 14 of us stayed at Stanley House for the weekend and it was fab! The bedrooms were all comfortable and the noise minimal. It is equipped with a great kitchen and dining area, which was ideal for cooking and eating the evening meal on the first night. There are also 2 dishwashers! It was great to sit in...

Good location in Eskdale, easy to find, as on side of road. Good sized rooms, most being en-suite. There were 24 of us, several generations. We self-catered, kitchen facilities adequate. Dining area large enough for us all. Owners were able to supply trestle tables so we could all eat at one table. Cinema room kept the younger ones happy. Great...

4 generations of family descended on the house and we all had a great time. The house is in a fabulous quiet location and better still limited mobile signal so we all got peace and quiet from work, PPI calls and insurance claims. The house is intimate yet still spacious with room for everybody to eat together, sit together but...

We drove up from Suffolk, having a bit of an arduous drive but eventually arrived at the Woolpack about 2pm knowing that the rooms weren't quite ready as the other family in our party was already having lunch there having arrived an hour earlier. A spot of late lunch for us and we were taken back to Stanley House and...

I am a tourist from India and I planned to go to the Lake District during the weekend. I checked a couple of b&bs and though Stanley house was a good option. The hotel was lovely and the double room was excellent with good view. There was a huge backyard and a small river flowing behind it. The steam train...
